Festival Of Color - Red Heart Trade Beads With Creamy Pearls


Hope Everyone Enjoyed A Blissful July 4th!  This Southern Girl Ate WAY TOO MUCH And Had To Literally Waddle In Here To Put This Post Together!


I Got A Bit Excited And Wanted To Share My Newest Bracelet Design. Not Sure If It Was All The American Flags Flyin' About Today, Or All The Barbequed Ribs Involved, But I Chose A Glorious Red To Mix With What Is Turning Out To Be One Of My Favorite Beading Materials...The Cultured Pearl.

I Try And Find The Prettiest, Creamiest Beiges When I'm Hunting Them Down.  They Just Seem To Go So Nicely With Anything.  I'm Also Falling A Bit In Love With The Use Of Trade Beads.  The Older The Better! They're Such Sturdy Lit'l Guys And Their Colors Are So True And Beautiful!

I Especially Like The Way The Shininess Of The Trade Beads Plays Against The Subtle Shine Of The Pearls. It's Kinda Like Bohemian Meets Sophistication Without Anyone Noticing They're From Separate Worlds. They Simple Just Fit Together.

Closing For Now..I've Got A Backyard Mess I Need To Tackle Before The Sun Goes Down! Sure Not Lookin' Forward To That Lit'l Adventure! Always Fun Enjoyin' The Goodies And The Fun - But Cleanin' Up Is A Whole Nother Sto-ry! :)
